I see so may pictures of idyllic scenes... green grass and rolling hills. Freshly painted and poop free coops. Then I go outside and look at my barn, and think to myself "I should have raised pigs instead." My crew is so messy. They don't roost on things that are supposed to be roosted on. They roost on buckets, and rafters. They poop all over. They scratch up holes in the yard and dig up the grass. The ducks dig holes and throw sod. The yard basically looks like a war zone with land mine holes So show me your yard. I want to know that I'm not the only one out here that has a trashy looking chicken area. I'll go first. There is no grass here. They killed it. Then kicked mud all over the feeders. Goat Boy standing and surveying the mud and destruction. At this point, there's no good place to start. 10 pounds of grass seed may help. A small corner of the bird ghetto. Girl child and I in front of the 100 year old barn with no insulation. The birds were fine last year, so i'm not making any huge changes.
